Winter: Hoar Frost in the Qu’Appelle Valley

Driving into the Qu’Appelle Valley north of Regina, Saskatchewan, I saw this tree and stopped.

Graceful and covered in hoar frost, it grows by a drop-off into the valley with blue hills behind. A single furrow of deer tracks led across the road, through the field towards it, and coyote tracks also stamped the nearby snow. Or perhaps those came from a dog wandering the snow, far from any house.

Winter has its own (cold) beauty.

  1. Thanks, Tracy! I love the days when there is hoar frost, but as you know, it's been (off and on) a very cold winter, so fewer chances for picture taking than I'd like.
